The American GeniusThe American Genius

Join us for a series of sessions that will give job seekers and tech ladder climbers a competitive advantage in this tough marketplace. Experts and mentors will host sessions designed to cut through the crap and help folks to get ahead.


let's offer exclusive strategies and actions folks can take

Yo, these are fake placeholder people for now – we’ll have actual people LIKE YOU in these spots asap, hang tight. 

Sessions will be divided into three tracks:


Online speakers will cover topics like:

Proposal criteria:

Session hosts are expected to present useful and practical information and focus on solutions (not problems) with key takeaways for how the strategies can be replicated. Lessons learned, challenges addressed, and useful tools are also valued. Any session featuring promotional material will not see the light of day (speaker headshots and bios will be prominently featured).

Please note that session topics must be submitted by April 12, and accepted proposals must be filmed and submitted by April 17. That’s a fast turnaround, we know, but we’re seeking to truly help as many people as possible.

This is not a paid speaking engagement, but you will be given proper assets for social media promotion, and your bio will be posted prominently on the session page, and also our eternal gratitude (seriously).


Session hosting tips

All content must be "exclusive" to this summit, meaning that the video has not appeared elsewhere and is dedicated specifically to this event.

We’re seeking hosts that will film a 15 minute session on their approved topic of their choosing. You don’t need a professional film crew, but let’s try to be as polished as we possibly can (no bow ties required, though, calm down).

We’re providing a platform so you can reach out and help candidates as they navigate the alphabet soup that is employment. From awesome interview skills to zigzagging up the corporate ladder, we need your help in giving our audience the very best from the very brightest (you)!

The tone is that of a mentor - not condescending, and not sappy cheerleading. Informative but direct, kind, and human. That’s our sweet spot. And it’s what people need right now.

Dress in whatever represents you - most of us here are t-shirt and jeans types, so wear what you’re comfortable in.

Tips for recording video from home:

Session hosts, sign up now!

We're looking for experts and laypeople alike to film 10-15 minute video sessions for the Summit to help job seekers and career climbers.


Please do not record a session until your session has been accepted (which we’ll do QUICKLY, since video submissions will be due by April 17th). All session hosts and attendees agree to the full Code of Conduct (available below). GOOD LUCK!!!

Thank you !!!
